Irma MannyRioseco/Papa Chi Chi's

Manny Rioseco is a Key West Native and a local business owner (Papa Chi Chi's Cuban Cafe).  Papa Chi Chi's is a family run restaurant, which makes it the only source of income for Manny, his wife and 3 children (the youngest is 8 months old).  Manny and his family evacuated during the hurricane and were lucky enough not to have their home or business completely destroyed, but there is quite a bit of damage and the keys as a whole are in need.  The damage along with the loss of income and expense of an entire family living away from home for 10 days adds up very fast.


This money would be used to help their family as well as the community.  Along with repairs and supplies for their home and business, they would like to use their restaurant to help feed people who weren't as lucky as they were.
